== Building RPM Package on Mandrakelinux 10.1 ==

I did it with the src.rpm package available at sf.net.
The RPM rebuild process is pretty similar to compiling from source but first we need to satisfy the dependencies (the fastest way is Mandrakelinux's ''urpmi''):
# download the [http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/inkscape/inkscape-0.41-1.src.rpm?download download Inkscape's src.rpm] at sourceforge.net
# <code>urpmi gtk2-devel</code> (Inkscape 0.41 needs gtk2-devel >= 2.4.0; use [http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ urpmi source "main"] if you haven't got a CD[[/DVD]] with devel packages)
# <code>urpmi libpng3</code> (libpng >= 1.2 is needed)
# now the '''libgc 6.4+''' is needed. I didn't found or somewhat missed the [http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Hans_Boehm/gc/gc_source/ Hans Boehm's gc] package for mdk 10.1, so i downloaded and compiled it like this: <pre>./configure --prefix=/usr
make install</pre> (in fact i used <code>checkinstall</code> instead of <code>make install</code> and then <code>urpmi /usr/src[[/RPM/RPMS/i586/gc]]-6.4-1luc.i586.rpm</code>)
# <code>urpmi libxml2-devel</code>
# <code>urpmi libxslt-devel</code>
# <code>urpmi libsigc++2.0_0-devel</code> (to be found at urpmi source "contrib")
# <code>urpmi libgtkmm2.4_1-devel</code> (also urpmi source "contrib")
# <code>urpmi popt-devel</code> (urpmi source "main")
# finally you can perform successfully: <code>rpm -rebuild inkscape-0.41-1.src.rpm</code> (the resulting RPM package will be probably stored as <code>/usr/src[[/RPM/RPMS/i586/inkscape]]-0.41-1.i586.rpm</code> according to your RPM settings)

I had some success with this method, but a couple issues:
The RPM would die on build because of an 'unpacked file'. So I ended up adding this to the spec file in /usr/src[[/RPM/SPECS]]
<code>%define _unpackaged_files_terminate_build 0</code>
I had other dependencies that I could not resolve easily:
        libgc.so.1 is needed by inkscape-0.42-0
        perl(XML::XQL) is needed by inkscape-0.42-0
        perl(XML::XQL::DOM) is needed by inkscape-0.42-0
And I had indeed installed libgc, so I ended up installing with nodeps:
rpm -ivh --nodeps inkscape-0.42-0.i586.rpm<br/>
Seems to be working fine (its so fast!!), but I might be missing perl/python support.
The HTML needs to be removed.
